Sophie and Noah helped me work through the rules to Power Grid. I’m very proud of them in that they ‘suffered’ through it willingly and had fun in the end. We only got to play a few rounds over the course of the 2 hours we worked through the steps (!) but in the end we all thought we’d like it. The game is listed for ages 12+ but I’m convinced they can play it.
I really wish they would have told us what “steps” meant before they started using it in the rules though. That would have made things a lot more understandable. Anyway, I think I’m in a much better position to teach the game but I think I’ll give it a few more test runs and then some reading on the BGG to understand the common pitfalls.
Anyway, thanks Sophie and Noah for helping me out.
